Director Statement

In 2019, Alex Borstein, won an Emmy Award for best supporting actress in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. In Alex's acceptance speech for the award, Alex remembered that her grandmother, a then prisoner, who while being marched to her death in the forests of Poland, made a courageous decision to just "step out of line". Her grandmother stepped out of line and an entire generation was saved by that one courageous step. "Step out of Line, ladies...just step out of line," applies to so much in today's world, for women and marginalized peoples everywhere. The end of my film not only reflects the changes that the world has had to make during Covid, but also reflects the inevitable loss that we all felt when a close member of the family died during the the Pandemic. Although, a romantic comedy, the end of the film reflects on those who left us, those of us who were irreparably changed by those losses. and those of us who suffered depression due to social Isolation. The negation of some characters as well as the change up of others, hopes to convey those themes. For all who passed, around the world, May Their Memory Be For A Blessing, and may we all go forward together in love and peace!
